Biography
Jim Pipkin – Performing Songwriter

Spent over 18 months in "Top 50 All Time" APD Americana/AAA Global Album Indicator

#9 on APD Americana/AAA Global Radio Indicator for March 2013

#3 on APD Americana/AAA Global Radio Indicator for February 2013

The first song here is “Wind River Christmas”, written with Cliff Cordes, who used to ride for the Triangle C in the Wind River country. He’s on harmonica. The very beautiful and talented Lee Lee Robert sings harmony on the chorus.

This tune was commissioned by Higley Arts Center in Arizona, and was released in a show there Oct 14 2017, "Jim Pipkin and Friends Around the Campfire".

I was joined onstage by Dolan Ellis, Arizona’s Official State Balladeer, and Marshall Trimble, Arizona’s Official State Historian, along with Wally Bornmann and Cliff Cordes.

The next songs on this DPK are from my most recent album, "Rollin' the Dice." All songs written or co-written by me, produced in the studios of the Arizona Songwriters Circle, and mastered by Bill Roberts.

CD Released Saturday, March 2, 2013 at Higley Center for the Performing Arts, Gilbert, AZ, to the largest crowd they've ever seen in their Acoustic Series Concerts.

Thanks for listening and sharing my tunes with YOUR listeners!!

Nominated for Arizona Governor's Arts Award by Southwest Folk Music Assoc


Performed my original songs on hundreds of stages over the years, from Nashville’s Bluebird Café to the now-defunct Union Grove Fiddler's Convention in North Carolina. At the same time I have worked on farms and loading docks, in orchards, gold mines, and textile mills, even serving as a Gunner's Mate in the United States Navy.

Appeared by invitation at the World Folk Showcase in Washington DC, and represented Arizona’s songwriting tradition as a guest of both the State of Arizona and the Folklore Society of Greater Washington at the FSGW’s annual Getaway at Camp Letts, Maryland.

Original songs have been recorded by Kerrville Folk Festival co-founder Allen Damron, Arizona’s Joe Bethancourt, Portland's Haris Blackwood, and Baltimore's Sue Trainor among others.
